The Mighty Fraser I.

Owl House A 0361

The Fraser River is the longest river within British Columbia.  Starting near Mount Robson in the Rocky Mountains it flows for 1,375 kilometres into the Strait of Georgia.

This post spotlights four structures that show what might be overlooked if you’re not looking for such things, beginning with an owl house, shown above, situated near the mouth of the river.

Next are two small buildings whose purpose is not known.  Perhaps they smoked salmon in these buildings?  I really can’t say.  But they are old and are too small for anyone to have lived in.

Finally, here is another building whose purpose is unknown to me.  It’s falling into the Pitt River, a tributary of the Fraser.

Except for the owl house, these structures hint at times and peoples fading from the memory of the Mighty Fraser River.
